I'm curious to know how secure public's website really is, when countless people say they've been subjected to fraud. has anyone heard of "drive by download"?
@gpixel4 Public's Website is secure. It depends what website your talking about. If your talking about selfserve then yes it is secure. It is hosted by AWS web services and has cyber security protection in place. I cant say much about the community because I've never looked deep into the community website.
The only thing that you have to be careful about is malware. If a hacker has your username and pass they have full access to your account.
The only way PM can prevent this is 2FA via a txt message, or email.
@BearFBI once the malware is installed, it's already over... the thing with drive by download is that you don't need to click on anything.. as soon as your on the page it's already downloaded the malware in the background looking for security flaws. once it finds a breach. the hacker is able to log keystrokes etc.
You're giving me way too much credit. I just play defense all the time. I try to not let anything happen on my computer.
My phone on the other hand...I do a few things with Firefox similar to desktop but all the other apps....fuggedaboudit. That's why I use Koho. Android is Google. Like everywhere...they're way too nosy. But hey...we like our convenient mobile computers. So we pay the price.
